The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
The beauty of the landscape in the highlands of Scotland are a well kept secret. Be inspired and uplifted by the Lochs and in the mountains, revive your spirit and refresh your soul. You can visit places where you can appreciate the incredible beauty and challenge of the natural world - and let it bring its beauty closer to you. The highlands of Scotland are generally sparsely populated, with many magnificent mountain ranges and lochs dominating the region, this includes the highest mountain in the British Isles, Ben Nevis (close to Fort William) and Loch Awe (The longest lake in Scotland), Loch Ness and Loch Lomond. The Scottish highlands area is now one of the most sparsely populated in Europe.
The cabin is located by the shores of Loch Awe which is 25 Miles (41 km) long set in the wonderful Dalavich Oakwood. There are walks between Inverinan and Ford. For an easy stroll follow the trail to discover the history and future of this ancient woodland. Stretch your legs a bit more on the Timber Walk and see some of the biggest trees around Loch Awe.
For the energetic there is the Loch Avich Walk where you can see the impressive Dalavich Falls. Close by is Ben Cruachan which is a 1126 m mountain that is the highest point in Argyll. It gives its name to a pumped-storage hydroelectric power station located in a cavern inside the mountain. Oban town centre has a large selection of well known shops, restaurants, pubs, cinema, leisure centre, night life and famous distillery. From Oban you can catch a ferry to the many islands on the west coast including Mull, Lorn and Coll. Visit Tobermory the setting for the well known children's TV show Balamory.

My partner and I spend a long weekend in this cosy cabin last November. Fully equipped with all you need, only a few minutes from the loch and a short distance to woodland walks. We (and our dog) had a relaxing stay and are planning on returning again this November.

My partner and i visited this cabin recently for a relaxing week. The cabin itself was lovely and cosy, we actually spent alot of time taking it easy within the cabin. The facilities were perfect - everything you'd need to get to know the area and make yourself extremely comfortable. The balcony was lovely for enjoying a morning cup of tea, or enjoying the night sky, also fully enclosed so the dog was always safe to roam when he pleased.A bit Behind the cabin are lovely forest walks - no driving required to get there which added to the ease of getting around. I would recomend this cabin to anyone who is looking to have a peaceful time away, we will be back again.

"A lovely getaway spot..."
The cabin is an ideal place to get away from it all and enjoy nature at its best. The cabin itself is very clean and cozy. Everything you could need for cooking and serving is there but make sure you take EVERYTHING you need for food and supplies as there is very little in the way of shopping in Dalavich. The 13.5 mile trek on the single track road into the cabin is a little daunting but it's worth it once you arrive.

"BEST WEEKEND AWAY EVER"
Never been to a log cabin ever and thought we would give it a go. the cabin itself was spotless, comfortable and very cosy given that it was mid-Oct. The peace and tranquility of surroundings was as priceless as the views around the area were breathtaking.
We climbed the hill behind the cabin to see Loch Avich and the waterfalls and it was well worth the effort. Spent the rest of our time sightseeing and relaxing and it has inspired a much longer trip around the highlands and islands next year.
Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.
